Take one part Backstreet Boys, pour in a hefty helping of british based singer Charli XCX, shake vigorously, and what do you get?!
A refreshing twist on an old school favorite!
Charli XCX has been touring with Marina and the Diamonds and recently took some time during their musical journey to play an intimate set at Borderline Music in Chicago…
And girl surprised the crowd with the first ever performance of her unique take on Backstreet Boys classic, I Want It That Way!
Open your ears to Charli's killer cover (above)!
Ahhhh we LOVE LOVE LOVE when artists cover songs but manage to make them completely their own!
And as fun as the original BB tune is, we are definitely digging Charli XCX's slower, softer edition.
SO many hearts!
